Listen to new music with old roots on this New Sounds program. Hear from the latest release, “Bella Ciao” by New York band Barbez, led by Dan Kaufman. Inspired both by ancient Roman-Jewish melodies, Italian neorealist cinema,and more immediately, by the songs of resistance during the Nazi occupation of Rome by the Italian partisans of World War II. The tunes weave European folksong, post-war classical, and experimental rock into heavy otherworldly protest cinema-scapes.
